Re: Peavey Plaza Reconstruction Project

I hope they get going on this sooner than later. I think monies from the Christmas Market should go towards renovations.

It would be amazing to see all the old commercial spaces in the area get this kind of treatment.
That building is sweet! Too bad the library pulled out back in the day!!

Re: 1500 Nicollet Half Block

While I don't think the current buildings are worthy of historic designation, etc. they do have their own charm - they just need to be cleaned up and get better tenants. A quality restaurant on that corner in the current 15th Street Market building could be a huge draw/improvement to the area. Huge ...

Re: Downtown Retail News

I hope they open as well. On a different note - stumbled across this men's tailor/clothing store in the Northstar Center http://www.martymathisclothiers.com/shop/. Surprised I hadn't heard of them before. Not that I need custom designed clothing, but pretty cool. Too bad they aren't open on the week...

Re: Roseville - General Topics

Unfortunately, I think Luce's quality has gone way down. Recently had a pizza delivered last week from the S. Mpls./Lyndale location and barely finished it off - no flavor whatsoever. Perhaps due to it's expansion model, or being spoiled by the flavors/quality of other pizzerias - Punch, Lola?

Re: Downtown Retail News

Any new retail downtown is good news.

Also - walking around the warehouse district, noticed Shoesters is moving in next to C'est Chic in Whitney Square.

Re: Eat Street

Happy/excited they are finally open and wishing them the best. Hopefully a 24/hour place will help deter some of the sketchy looking people that seem to be hanging out in this area of Nicollet lately. I have high hopes that with the streetcar line - this area and the rest of Nicollet gets cleaned up...

Kozy Bar and Apts. (The Pastoret Building), Duluth

I stumbled upon this building when I was up in Duluth.

Anyone have an update?

Re: Duluth Business News

Enjoyed a beautiful day up in Duluth yesterday with my Mom for her b-day. We enjoyed checking things out - rose garden, Leif Erickson Park, Canal Park (enjoyed lunch at Canal Park Brewing Co. - highly recommend). Things were hopping. Also took some pics in Old Downtown. Really love this city - so ma...

Re: Soo Line Building Apartments - (501 Marquette Avenue)

I am sorry but I am really disappointed with this project. Granted I haven't been inside any of the units, but the lobby/shared areas look really cheap and will be dated very quickly. Wish they would've gone with an elegant, timeless look. Simple, clean. Even fake plants!

Re: Downtown Restaurant News

There are signs on the first and skyway levels of RBC Plaza for some new salad bar-concept restaurants to be opening up. Obviously "healthy fast-food" style establishments.

Re: Downtown Retail News

Did a little digging to see if there were any headlines about Office Depot's closing and came across this article from a few years ago about a lawsuit. Interesting.

Re: Downtown Retail News

Don't know if anyone else has noticed but Office Depot in City Center is closing. Honestly happy to see this happen! Hopefully a sign of new development/redevelopment of City Center - at least exterior along Nicollet Mall.
